Is It Really Safer To Buy Organic Food?
New recalls for brown rice syrup has worried Dr. Oz about the healthiness of organic food. It’s used in organic products, mostly found in breakfast bars and kid’s cereal, and has now been found to contain arsenic. The arsenic is found in soil, water, and fertilizer and some crops, organic or not, suck up arsenic. Rice, apples, grapes, and pears, will suck up arsenic in the soil.
Cheap Organic Food
This is a list of organic food Dr. Oz recommends to buy:
1. Potatoes: Regular potatoes grow on vines, which exposes them to pesticides and fungus from the ground.
2. Peppers and celery: Both suck up pesticides and hold on to them.
3. Spinach, lettuce and collard greens: Bugs love these leafy greens, so more pesticides are used in regular produce.
4. Dairy: There’s less hormones and antibiotics in organic dairy products.
